Jet Aerobatics, is dedicated to the operation, preservation & display of their fast jet training aircraft
The first ever flight of the Jet Provost took place 66 years ago on the 26th June 1954. This venerable aircraft served the RAF for almost 40 years and a number are still airworthy and can be seen regularly on the UK air show circuit!
This year is another milestone anniversary for XW324 as she reaches her half century, 1970-2020
Here at Jet Aerobatics we hope to have another extremely busy season.
For 2020 Jet Aerobatics will be again offering a single ship display but with prior arrangement a pairs display is not out of the question, however this will obviously depend on crew and aircraft availability.
We aim to provide a flowing and visually satisfying display with an emphasis on satisfying both the Photographers and the viewing public. We hope to continue to provide a highly dynamic and exciting aerobatic display which has thrilled the British air show going public for many years.
Combined with aerobatic manoeuvres our display pilot/s will also provide some rather graceful flying which will offer the photographers amongst you the chance to take some amazing and evocative photographs of this amazing little aeroplane and at the same time will show the slow handling characteristics of this immaculate Mk5 (XW324).
We’re often told by the photographers that the slower, less dynamic displays are the best for photography and due to the latest ‘risk assessments’ organisers need to undertake they too seem to favour ‘slow and graceful’ over the more high speed dynamic displays of the past, that said, we will endeavour to cater for all tastes.
As a foot note, although the aerobatic restrictions have now been lifted we will still have to abide by any restrictions imposed by a particular venue and/or operate within an organisers’ display approval.
Our displays are however adaptable and with this flexibility we should be more than able to suit all venues and tastes alike.
Our current roster of pilots is led by our chief pilot Flt Chelvin Hibbert (Ret’d) and include Flt Andy Sell who has amassed in excess of 12,000 hours, Andy currently instructs at RAF Cranwell on the Phenom 100 and amongst other things has captained the BBMF’s Lancaster and C47 and more recently has displayed the Grob Tutor.
This year we are excited to welcome a new member to the team in the form of Phil Bird, Phil is also no stranger to the air show circuit having previously displayed the Typhoon.
